^thanks sis, very informative. napa-research ako ng sangkatutak na detailed maps ng Busuanga. ang layo pala ng Club Paradise (Dimakya Island). so kung gusto makaranas ni mommy ng beachfront sa Coron, pwedeng two nights siguro sa Club Paradise (wala munang tours) tapos sa magandang hotel sa Coron Town para sa tours.

in fairness, when i checked the map, mas malapit pa yung Apo Island sa Coron Town.. kaso wala palang aircon sa Majika's Island Resort. very native din.

^^sis julmin4u, alam mo, i requested a quote from Corongaleri na halos parehong-pareho ng itinerary mo. private tour kasi for 11pax. mas mura yung cost/pax namin, maybe because malaking group kami, so the cost is divided by 11pax. ilan ba kayo? ito kasi quote samin given 11pax:

Coron island loop - P650/pax
Beach hopping - P1200/pax
lusong coral garden - P990/pax

so total of P2840/pax lang, pero 11pax kasi kami.

Hi meimei, tatlo lang kasi kami so lumalabas ok na pala yun quote sa min :)

Meimei,

Banana Island and Malcapuya Island have really nice beaches. I've been to both twice and have photos, send me a direct message if you want the link.  But it's also far from Coron. Around 45 mins to 1 hour boat travel time.  In Coron mismo, there are no good resorts with good beachfront.  Every resort with nice beaches are in islands surrounding Coron.

I know of a beachfront resort a few minutes by boat from Coron town.  But not that nice a beach na as in Malcapuya or Banana Island type :)

Hi guys, I booked at Apartelle de Gabrille accomodation and tour na. P5,500 per pax yung package na kinuha ko + P300 dahil nag upgrade ako sa deluxe room. Our package includes accomodation for 4days/3nights, roundtrip airport transfer, daily breakfast, coron town tour (Mt. Tapyas, Maquinit, Lualhati Park, coron cashew & souvenir shop), coron island tour (KAYANGAN LAKE, ISLA BULUGAN, CORAL EDEN, TWIN PEAK, CYC ISLAND, HIDDEN LAGOON - saan tong hidden lagoon?anyone been there?), coron escapde tour (banana, malcapuya & bulog) lunch on ISLAND tour, boat, boatman, guides, life vest. Medyo konti yung tours pero feeling ko ok na to kasi parang nakakapagod ang tour. 2 lang kami ni hubby. I'll let you know kung maganda ang experience namin here. Sa dec. 19 pa punta namin dun hehe
LOVE ME LIKE YOU'LL NEVER SEE ME AGAIN

^sis nagkataon lang, yung girlfriend nung may-ari kasi kilala ko. hindi ko nga alam na may-ari pala nung isla yung boyfriend niya. nabasa ko lang sa website saka ko lang napansin  ;D

pero ngayon im thinking na magbook na lang ng room sa coron island instead, kasi the price na binigay saken nung kilala ko is per person, kahit yung sa accomodation. included na meals sa accomodation eh ang kaso hindi naman magllunch dun sa island for sure dahil sa activities and i doubt na i'll get up early in time for breakfast. nung una its fine kasi ang plan ko is go there by myself. boyfie wont let me so he's coming with me na. so doble na yung price.

sino po nakapunta sa calauit island? what's special about the place except the zafari tour? sa tour namin kasi di na kami nagpunta dun. sobra kasing layo ng island... baka lang may namiss kasi ako na pinuntahan dun.

^wow, naka-stay ka na sa Two Seasons Coron?? :o sis, alam mo ba, nung una kong nakita ang rates nila sa website, for a moment i thought "typographical error ba to?", but no! ganun talaga siya kamahal. did you really pay at least 30K/night? o may nakuha kayong promo somewhere?

^huwaaaat?? where do you work?? hahahaha! that's a very generous and wealthy company. :) or you must be a CEO of some sort? haha.

anyway, i just wish we could experience Two Seasons Coron even for just one night, kaso baka himatayin ang magulang ko sa presyo at sabihin na i-cash ko na lang. hahaha!

Hay naku! Cebu Pacific cancelled our flight back from Coron to Manila on Dec. 30, instead we're going back last flight of Dec. 29. Nakakainis kasi Lusong gunboat/shipwreck pa naman ang tour namin ng 29.

Sana naman e maging maayos etong bakasyon namin. Originally booked for zest air but all flights were cancelled so I requested for a refund then booked at Cebu Pacific, now naman eto nga....


Hay talaga.
